The Roxey Ballet Celebrates 25th Season with Performance at World Music Festival
The Lambertville | New Hope based Roxey Ballet will continue its tradition of excellence and dedication to diversity with its 25th year of incredible International dancers and performances. "We are welcoming back our company dancers, some of which have been with us for many seasons. We are anticipating their arrival to start the important work of education and celebration of dance," said founder Mark Roxey.
Diversity is an important topic at Roxey Contemporary Ballet where the work is anything but typical. Here the performances speak for themselves, nothing is ordinary or traditional ballet. Here it is all about the unexpected and the fantastical, where choreography is fresh and empowering. Roxey is all about passion and they leave it on the stage for their audience to absorb. Their company contains dancers from Russia, Chile, Spain, Korea, Japan and the US two of which they are very proud to say are chair dancers. All of which have studied at world renowned companies with incredible and passionate teachers and the work is continuing seamlessly here in the studios on North Union Street.
This season promises to please and starts strong with Dracula, back by popular demand followed by a crowd favorite, The Nutcracker. Tickets are available now for both productions as well as VIP Season Passes that offer discounted tickets and many member perks such as complimentary In-Studio Event series and back stage passes. Their loyal audience members can look forward to Cinderella, Carmina Burana and We Vs. C, Stories of Triumph over Cancer, later in the season.
Roxey Ballet also feels very strongly about Education through Dance and Celebrating Diversity and will be performing at the World Music Festival on September 30th. The attendees will enjoy excerpts from their educational programming that is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, The Kennedy Center, VSA: The International Organization on Arts and Disability, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospitals, Merck Foundation, Bunbury Foundation, Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Commission, and Cultural Trust of New Jersey. It is a program that focuses on human rights, civil rights, disabilities and bullying. It is moving and powerful and not to be missed.
